The first batch of Norwegian oil arrived in Belarus


The Naftan Oil Refinery in Belarus has started processing the first batch of Norwegian oil, which entered the republic from the port of Klaipeda.


According to the Belta agency, in the morning of January 26, 59 railway tanks arrived in Novopolotsk, which delivered 3,5 thousand tons of “black gold” from Klaipeda.

The report states that the Norwegian ship Breiviken delivered 86 thousand tons of oil to the Lithuanian port. The remaining volume will be delivered in parts to Belarus within two weeks.

Given such inconvenient and complex logistics - by sea to the Lithuanian port, and from there, in parts, as empty railway tanks are available, to Belarus, it can be assumed that the price of this oil, and ultimately the products obtained as a result of processing, is unlikely to be lower the one that Russia offers.

All this suggests that the president of Belarus, Alexander Lukashenko, is not so much driven by the search for benefits for the republic, as by exorbitant personal ambitions that outweigh common sense.

It is difficult to say how long Minsk will continue to “chew the cactus”, but it is obvious that this process will have an extremely negative impact on both the price of fuel in Belarus and the economy republics in general.

    The impression that Belarus will soon have to send a convoy of food, like to the Donbass, with such a sorrowful president, like a collective farmer, choose, brothers, a sane leader or any other.

    We in Ukraine have long been absurdly suffering from the flawed anti-Russian "policy", the deranged Western "Kiev authorities", which, to please Washington, unleashed a civil war on the "edge" and, along with the bloody genocide of the population, stupidly ruin Ukrainian industry and agriculture, depriving the still living Ukrainian citizens of all means of subsistence and conditions for human life! request
    And now the Belarusian "last dictator of Europe" - the best friend and accomplice of the "Ukrainian" bloody Banderlogists, contrary to the aspirations of their Belarusian compatriots, also (like the kleptozh / banderva - "to spite Russia") decided to "go to the West" for dubious "cookies" and "a premium barrel of jam" ..., ditching the Belarusian industry and agriculture, "Svidomo" dooming millions of their fellow citizens to hopeless poverty and dull timelessness ??!
    Does the Arab League act wisely, having before its eyes a sad "Ukrainian example", and a quickly runaway colleague, the same unlucky, "cunning" rogue Yanyk (in his pro-American "flirtations" with the Nazis and "uncontested European integration" "even one" cadence "!) ??! fool

    It would be better if the economist wrote about the price .... And then there are many words, but there are few specifics ....
